Blood Disorders Related to FeLV Infection in Cats

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

Supportive therapy will include fluid therapy and antibiotics for treating infections. Depending on the stage of the virus, the hematopoiesis may be brought under control with the medication prednisolone, or with the administration of corticosteroid. Further treatment will be based on how well your cat's immune system is fighting the FeLV infection.
